I feel I have become nothing and nobody. My endeavors have become futile, my works have become irrelevant, and my self has become distraught. I am nothing. We are nothing. I feel it fully and I wonder if it will ever go away.
No, I do not *actually* have a mustache.

It’s SO good to be back. Let’s dive right in and I’ll give you the update/lowdown on what’s been going on with me.
as I’ve mentioned previously, I’m constrained to writing and producing music via mobile device. That had been a curse, but I’ve been getting steadily better at it.
Recently I got an iPhone 6, which has allowed me to move into even more complex mobile production via GarageBand mobile. I absolutely love it.
I had been going through a rough patch dealing with some issues... but I’m doing much better now. During that time I wrote much music that didn’t get released for one reason or another, but upon my recent victory I’ve gained the confidence to share what I have deemed complete.
Many of you may have noticed the massive influx of 2019 music- this post is your explanation. I’ve been dabbling around quite a bit with many different styles in search of my niche, so you’ll find that most of the tracks uploaded differ from each other.
If you’re looking for a rock experience, I’d check out “[Don’t] Need You”. If you’re into funk or were looking for new rap, try “Boogie Nights”. “Trinity”, “Mechanical Sunrise” and “Blazé Battle” are all instrumentals I’ve composed. The other one, I’ll let you find the title on its own, was just a track I wrote to make a girl I like laugh.
It’s SO good to be posting here again. I hope you all enjoy what I’ve created.

'Player One' and I have been hard at work on our newest track "I Understand- Syndrome Ft. Alkima" and we're excited to announce that we are nearing completion! Keep an eye out. It'll be on https://neoalchemist247.newgrounds.com as well as https://reverbnation.com/djdj1 and https://soundcloud.com/d2j2
We've been putting a lot of work into this one as we are trying out a new sound, so definitely stay alert for the release!
Thanks all! Stay real!

For those that may have missed it, I released a new track a couple of days ago with T-Y-Z-E-R [The guy I made Drama Central with, remember? ;P ] called "Untitled". Here's a link:
I took an all-out approach with this one. People seem to dig it. There are some existing EQ issues that I plan to rectify in the coming weeks as work permits, but if you're listening to it through headphones, you'll not notice any major flaws.
Hope you enjoy!

I'm back, again.
Wrote a track with Grant [Bowtie, MSB]
I haven't used his work freshly in a long time, but I plan to use a lot more of his work in the coming year.
Perk up your ears for my new releases. Follow me on Twitter @DJDjOfficial
I'm still around. I still love ya, Newgrounds.

Heya! It's been a crazy year, so far, but a good one. I've found a professional studio that I will be endeavoring to produce my first album with later on this year/early next year.
In the interrim, I'm trying to get in contact with everybody that I've worked with along the way and confirm that I am able to use their tracks for commercial use. If I have used a track of yours, or if you'd like me to try to, hit me up! I'm very easy to work with and I'm happy to meet new collaborators. Have a great day and stay awesome, Newgrounds!

So I was going through some old projects that I've scrapped, and among them are a few tracks that you might enjoy.
Because of how the audio player is layed out, they're buried back in with other tracks that have been out for years.
Here's a list:
1. Contrition [http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/574550?updated=1491957593]
I wrote this forever ago as my first attempt to run with a label. "MoeBProductions", as it were. They were very unprofessional and renamed my track without my permission, then refused to contact me via email after putting my track up to try and make money off of it without giving me a cut. I've since changed the copyright to "No Commercial Use", so I may be going to court with them over this one, one day. Anyways. I refuse to ever work with them again, but I like this track and it's part of my history. So there it is. It is categorized under the year 2014.
2. Radioactive [DEMO] [http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/554422?updated=1491957944]
Wrote this for fun. Loved Radioactive back before it got overplayed and subsequently forgotten. Not sure why I took this one down, but it's back. You'll find it under year 2013.
3. Double Decades [http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/557495?updated=1491958219]
Ahh... THIS song... I wrote this waaaaaay back in... 2011? I think. Not certain. But I lurve on this track something epic. @Waterflame did an epic job on the beat. I wrote it from the perspective of the love and light within me talking to me. [In reality, it's a bit more religious than that, but we're gonna spare you those details]. I created a waaaay better quality remake, but I have yet to upload it to my NG profile. It is categorized under the year 2013.
4. Spring [http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/557501?updated=1492089733]
Initially written in 2010, the irony of this track rests in the fact that I was inspired to write it because everything outside was encased in ice. Fun fact: this track was recorded so long ago, I had to record each hand's notes individually, as I hadn't quite grasped how to play both hands at once, yet. This was my [actual] 2nd full midi song. The 1st was titled "Welcome to Our Hell" and is, as yet, a missing marvel. That was, and is, my only full MIDI track [including drums], sadly I may never hear that one again. This song is filed under the year 2013.
5. HDCCypherSample[WIP] [http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/571159?updated=1491959575]
HDC has been so kind to me. I miss those guys and gals. I really do. Wish I could start working with them again, but we've all got our lives and priorities to take care of. Still... I dream it'll happen someday. Featuring Mickey Mao, Fats and I this is a track by which I'm truly saddened by it's lack of completion. I took it down in anticipation of the full completed track's release which would feature a 4th singer. But, alas, this track will forever remain a WIP. Or is it a completed work of art? You decide. It's filed under the year 2014.
6. Shook- SG Ft. DJDj[wip] [http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/570470?updated=1491959849]
I met a man back in 2012 that really helped me as an adult. His name is B. Shook. I won't disclose his full name, as I'm afraid he may not wish it to be known. He isnpired me to be the best leader I can be, even though the U.S. Army had just cut me down by telling me I'm inelligible to join [which has now happened twice]. I wrote this song to honor him. Here's to you, Mr. Shook! Keep on keepin' on, man. This track is filed under the year 2014.
Well. That's it for now, folks. There's a few more that are in there but I won't upload them until I'm satisfied with their end-result. Remember: Don't delete your work. Even if you hate it. One day, you'll regret not being able to look back and reminisce.

It was 2005 when I found this site for the first time. I thought "Madness Interactive" was the best thing ever back then. But my main draw was the audio portal. I know it was forever, because it was back when they had the animated robot standing next to the audio portal. Remember that? He looked like Optimus Prime with an EQ monitor in his chest, looked like he had robo-sunglasses on? I wish they'd bring that audio portal front page back. Anyways.
The audio portal was supposedly just a passing fancy to me back then. But something kept bringing me back. Never knew what.
One day I realized what it was: I didn't just want to listen to the amazing music. I wanted to make it. Be a part of it. So I started- about 6 years later- to make music. I started on my Casio keyboard at home. Singing with the premade beats, which turned into making my own beats on the 6 pre-set recordable tracks. Then my buddy Christian George, who's in the Airforce now, learned how to play music. Starting on my very own guitar. We wrote a few songs together, only one of which survives to this day [on myspace]. I was 13 when we wrote it. Here: https://myspace.com/us2u4life/music/song/running-away-27302176-27103361
(Just in case you want to hear a 13 year old me)
It all lead to me making music here. I, at one point, got pissed because I made some really lewd music and uploaded it, not knowing there was no delete button. I threatened to sue Newgrounds if they didn't take it down and I was wrong. Regardless, they took down my whole account and added a delete button [Yeah, guys. That was me. Lol.] I made a new account within a year and started uploading new music.
I won't give you the WHOLE story, but let's suffice it to say that Newgrounds.com is the most incredible site I have ever worked with/on. Please give these people your respect [and your money if you have, like, way too much for yourself] because they REALLY deserve it. Seriously.
I am currently listening to "Choices". My 2nd newest track, and realizing that one of the BEST choices I ever made was to continue this account. I have received more heart-felt criticism from this site than anywhere else. Soundcloud's got NOTHIN' on this site. Please stay forever. Please listen to as many artists as you can- because nowhere else on the internet is there a place THIS awesome to share your content.
Mr. Fulp- if you read this, I'm so sorry I ever doubted you. I'm sorry I tried to blame my own insecurities and immaturities on you. You were not at fault, and I hope you'll consider me a friend.
Newgrounds' Users- Please stay an active part of this site. Also, listen to my music. It is the product of a long-fought battle with myself, and it really, REALLY might help you through some difficult times. I know it helped me.
With the kindest regards,
